HIMAWARI RACING AT FUJI: Drivers and cars

February 27, 2009 12:30 am Published by

I recently attended a drift event at Fuji Speedway Drift Course run by Himawari Racing in Tokyo, which is led by a young AE86-driving guy named Kazuya.

Himawari (which means “sunflower”) had an amusing way of naming the different skill classes on the day. Beginner classes were named after delicate flowers like Tulip Class and Rose Class. The more skilled groups were named things like Dandelion, all the way up to Sunflower Class, the biggest and toughest flower of the lot.

I really have to start bringing out the camera a bit more when I’m actually driving at an event, but lugging out a big long lens after getting out of the driver’s seat is usually put in the “can’t be arsed” basket.

Anyway, here’s a couple of more pics of drivers and their cars from the day.
